“Stylish” new edition for the Rouge’s overseas brother

Nissan has released a new special edition for the X-Trail crossover. It’s designed to attract those wanting a unique styling with more stylish trimmings. Aptly enough, Nissan is calling it the X-Trail Style Edition. How sophisticated.

The Style Edition is said to feature many of the X-Trail’s most desirable accessories, making it a one-box check-off for those wanting a loaded crossover. The Style Edition builds off the X-Trail’s range-topping trim, the Tekna grade. This already bumps the Nissan into the upper registers of amenities and features.

The new edition doesn’t make changes to the X-Trail’s drivetrain, so both the 1.6-liter dCi 130 diesel engine and the 1.6-liter DIG-T 163 gasoline engines are available. Both engines now come with a start/stop system for better fuel economy and less emissions. Customers can also choose between FWD and 4WD, along with a manual transmission or Nissan’s Xtronic CVT.

Beyond the “stylish” updates, the X-Trail Style Edition offers the same versatility as before. It can be had in either five- or seven-passenger configurations, offers Nissan’s Luggage Board System that allows customers to configure the cargo area in 18 different ways, and the rear tailgate has a one-touch automatic opening feature.

Nissan says the X-Trail Style Edition is already available for the starting price of £29,405, or roughly $42,363 U.S. dollars at current exchange rates.

The X-Trail Style Edition gets plenty of small updates, both within the cabin and on the exterior. Interior updates include alloy sport pedals, chrome door sills, power-adjustable leather seats with heating, a leather steering wheel, and a leather gear shifter knob. Outside, the upgrades include 19-inch Black Ibiscus alloy wheels, chrome mirror caps, a chrome finisher on the lower tailgate, and satin-finish roof rails.

Technology wise, the X-Trail Style Edition comes with the Nissan Connect system and its seven-inch touch-screen. There’s also a slew of safety equipment. Coming standard is Nissan Safety Shield with Around View Monitor, Forward Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Signal Recognition, and Park Assist.

There’s no question this special edition will sell well. It seems more and more customers are flocking to crossovers every year. What’s more, high-end crossovers are doing extremely well, showing that people are willing to pay good money for a souped-up version of a mid-class crossover.

There’s no word whether Nissan will offer something similar on the U.S.-based Rouge, but our suspicion says it’s rather likely.

Press Release

Style by name, stylish by nature – Nissan has introduced a new special edition of the X-Trail crossover that features many of the car’s most desirable accessories. The X-Trail Style Edition is on sale now and further enhances the model’s reputation for premium quality, comfort and contemporary design.

Using the range-topping Tekna grade as its starting point, the long list of additional equipment includes alloy sports pedals, chrome door sills, chrome mirror caps, a chrome finisher on the lower boot and striking 19-inch ‘Black Ibiscus’ alloywheels. In addition, there’s extra protective trim on the boot lip and a practical boot floor mat.

The high level of specification included on Tekna trim means a wide range of Nissan’s easy-to-use infotainment technology is already featured on the car. It’s accessed via the intuitive NissanConnect seven-inch touch-screen. Also standard is a comprehensive suite of real-world safety systems, including Nissan Safety Shield with Around View Monitor, Forward Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning and Traffic Signal Recognition. Nissan’s innovative Intelligent Park Assist is also fitted.

Leather upholstery on the seats, which are electrically adjustable and heated for the driver and front passenger, is included, plus there’s a leather steering wheel, leather gear selector and satin-finish roof rails.

The X-Trail is the most versatile crossover in Nissan’s award-winning range, which also features the Qashqai and Juke. The X-Trail is available with either five or seven spacious seats, and is equipped with an innovative Luggage Board System as standard. This enables owners to adjust the boot shelves and dividers to create 18 different cargo-carrying configurations. For genuine every day practicality, there’s a one-touch automatic opening power tailgate.

The Style Edition is available now, priced from £29,405 and offered with the 1.6-litre dCi 130 diesel or 1.6-litre DIG-T 163 petrol engines. Both come with engine start/stop to minimise emissions and fuel use, and there’s a choice of two and four-wheel drive, and manual and Xtronic transmissions.
